GHOST PLANES, GUILT AND GOONEYS

The drone of a plane awakens me out of a peaceful slumber. They’re coming to save us! Like paratroopers landing on the beaches of Normandy. But history shows what happened on D-Day. And there will be casualties of war. I’ve awakened into a bad dream and strain to hear the ghost planes –those ghost riders, phantom fighters my husband heard asContinue reading “GHOST PLANES, GUILT AND GOONEYS”

HOLY SATURDAY!

I see the light through the long, dark antechamber. Some believe Jesus has passed over to be with his Father in heaven. This, what I remember from my teachings at Catholic school. So now what am I to believe as the sun shines brightly on this ‘dark’ Saturday. I want to rejoice even if IContinue reading “HOLY SATURDAY!”

GOOD FRIDAY iCLOUDS

Good Friday, always cloudy as Jesus hangs dying on the cross. I wonder now if tomorrow never came, would he still rise on Sunday? Would there be a second coming if the human species disappeared behind the clouds (except for the survival of the fittest, the survival of the richest)? But if the species wereContinue reading “GOOD FRIDAY iCLOUDS”

Water gushes in from a crack in the ceiling. The community pool overflows. The tennis court is flooded.Continue reading “FLOOD IN THE TIME OF CORONA”

Dear (I’ll not give you power by speaking your name), My life is in ruins and you are to blame. You’re the excuse I give for not accomplishing my goals,  the reason my book bombed before it soared.  And it’s because of you, I’m so freakin’ bored. You’re the reason for my miscarriages,  my financialContinue reading “FATTENING THE CURVES or DEAR YOU WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED”

INFUSION CONFUSION or CANCER IN THE TIME OF COVID

The doctor has called to give us a choice. What? Death by cancer or death by COVID 19? Cover us. We’re going in! I’ve got your six, Honey. But I’ll have to take cover in the car. We’re going into do battle today — up against another beast. We’ll strap on our weapons and donContinue reading “INFUSION CONFUSION or CANCER IN THE TIME OF COVID”

RIVER HOUSE BOOKS

My alarm just went off to remind me of my book signing for Curse of the Ninth scheduled this afternoon at RIVER HOUSE BOOKS from 2-4 p.m. Alas, the event has been postponed until a time when we can meet again! I can’t wait to sign those books! I just want to give a shoutContinue reading “RIVER HOUSE BOOKS”

GRANDMA GOT NAILED BY THE EASTER BUNNY

In response to 45s hopes for Easter and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s (Texas) call for seniors to sacrifice themselves in order to save the American Economy   Grandpa and I have eight grandchildren  whom we simply adore and so in exchange for keeping America strong, we are willing to sacrifice for the children. Therefore, on HolyContinue reading “GRANDMA GOT NAILED BY THE EASTER BUNNY”
